The law was our tutor to bring us to Christ. Living by rules and regulations is found among the religious and carnal, but a Spirit-filled person lives by the law of the Spirit of life (Romans 8:2). The law of the Spirit of life overcomes the law of sin and death, which is the law that governs our flesh. Walking in the flesh really is death (Romans 8:13), you might get a couple of victories here and there, but the power of our flesh nature will overcome our will as long as we are striving in the flesh. You can’t beat the flesh with the flesh. Victory is only done through the power of the Spirit. If you are struggling today by a lust, bad moods, fear, doubt, unbelief, love of money etc. just give up and trust that the Lord is going to deliver you in His timing. We have the nature of Jesus living in our spirit, we don’t need an outsider teaching us to do this or do that, instead by living by the perfect way, the way of the Spirit. 1 John 2:27 ” But the anointing which you have received from Him abides in you, and you do not need that anyone teach you; but as the same anointing teaches you concerning all things.

 

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:2
